« Part 1: Big Trouble Tomorrow Today Part 2 of If one writes a song can one post it here? series Part 3: a ways to go »

Palms swaying in the breeze
gotta let it go.
Red sun rising from the sea
gotta let it go.
Together walking along the shore,
hoping it’s the same for you.
Nature rolling in,
forever changing.

Dolphin circling, herding the fish,
that’s the way it goes.
Then attack, a feeding frenzy,
that’s the way it goes.
Cold coming in,
Manatee heading to
Blue Springs where it’s warm
all the time.

Pelican swoops in rides the crest of the wave,
oh look at it go.
Lucky this time hooks the fish midway,
oh look at it go.
Sets me to wondering,
what we are missing.
The keeper that doesn’t understand what has been given.

Once a year sea turtle lays it’s eggs,
oh look at it grow.
Hatched young fighting for every inch of life,
very few may grow.
Heading out to sea,
where it all began.
Part of the circle they are,
not so for man.

Then the crowds came
cement closing in,
I can’t take it anymore.
Wondering, searching for something that was left,
I can’t take it anymore.
Then we hit Turtle Mound Rd,
between the river and the sea.
Should of been more left,
all life has the right to be.

-- Ain't better or worse than any other woodpecker in the woods.

i won’t need to bring a radio !

i started out as a poet ,

haiku .

What? No YouTube Videos? :)
When I first saw your Avatar I thought it was a pic of a young James Taylor! Now it turns out you’re a songwriter too…
Would really enjoy hearing your songs, Jack!

While we are all in the singing mood I thought I should play the Lumberjock Anthem once again.

I’m a lumberjack and I’m okay,
I sleep all night and I work all day.

Chorus: He’s a lumberjack and he’s okay,
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

I cut down trees, I eat my lunch,
I go to the lavatory.
On Wednesdays I go shopping
And have buttered scones for tea.

Mounties: He cuts down trees, he eats his lunch,
He goes to the lavatory.
On Wednesdays he goes shopping
And has buttered scones for tea.

Chorus: He’s a lumberjack and he’s okay,
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

I cut down trees, I skip and jump,
I like to press wild flowers.
I put on women’s clothing,
[ Monty Python Lyrics are found on www.songlyrics.com ]
And hang around in bars.

Mounties: He cuts down trees, he skips and jumps,
He likes to press wild flowers.
He puts on women’s clothing,
And hangs around in bars.

Chorus: He’s a lumberjack and he’s okay,
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

I cut down trees, I wear high heels,
Suspendies and a bra.
I wish I’d been a girlie,
Just like my dear pappa.

Mounties: He cuts down trees, he wears high heels?
Suspendies…and a bra?

...he’s a lumberjack and he’s okay,
He sleeps all night and he works all day.

...he’s a lumberjack and he’s OKAAAAAAAAAAYYY.
He sleeps all night and he works all day.
